Hulk Hogan desperate for final WWE match to secure his legacy

Football News

Talk of Hulk Hogan returning to WWE for one final match has been doing the rounds for years and the WWE legend himself has been one of the loudest voices calling for it to be given the green light.

Despite having passed his 61st birthday, and having not wrestled in a scheduled match in the WWE for well over a decade, Hogan has made no secret of his desire to get back in the ring one final time.

And now, speaking to The Sioux City Journal, Hulk Hogan has revealed just why he is so desperate to make it happen.

True motivation

Going into detail on the current situation Hogan spoke of recent conversations with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, and his right hand man Triple H, before opening up about the true motivation behind the whole thing:

"I weigh 295. I'm in really good shape and I'm training like I'm going to get in the ring," explained the Hall of Famer.

"I'm like a convict given a life sentence. It could happen. Vince said, 'Never say never.' And that's what I want - one last match, one last run, one last title win, one last title retirement.

"Triple H told me I've got nothing to prove but the last time I wrestled was not with this company and I want my legacy to end with the WWE."

Speculation continues

Should Hulk Hogan get his wish and return to the WWE ring there are a number of potential opponents that would send the WWE Universe into meltdown.

John Cena has long been touted as the most likely option and Hogan himself recently expressed a desire to take on the long time favorite. With both having held the mantle of top dog in the WWE it would certainly be a battle of two wrestling powerhouses.

The other name touted in the past was of course Stone Cold Steve Austin. With the duo currently embroiled in somewhat of a real life feud it remains to be seen whether Stone Cold could really be coxed out of retirement to take on Hogan but it would certainly draw the crowds.

Wrestlemania finale?

It looks like, if Hogan is to fight again in the WWE, it would come on the grandest stage of them all - WrestleMania 31.

The one-off occasion would be the perfect arena for which to allow Hulkamania to have its final hurrah and, with Hogan having already hosted this year's event with great success, Vince McMahon shouldn't need too much convincing on any potential match up.

What do you think? Does Hulk Hogan need one more fight to secure his legacy, or would another match ruin what he has achieved? Let us know in the comments section below...
